1-2-3,1-2-3,1-2-3,1-2 repeat for about 5 minutes...call it the 11 jam.

Those '81 NYE shows were quite something. Jerry's voice was still sweet and smooth, check out the Black Pete. Jerry's guitar was talking to me throughout these shows. I was such a newb, 20 years old and I thought I was worldly and wise...hah!

These were my first camp out for multiple nights shows. We were front row each night, including NYE - which was a struggle of mammoth proportions..

Watching the sharks rip off the stoners - keep your eye on the queen!

Not as easy as one might think considering the circumstances.

Show #5...should have been #6 but I was an idiot and skipped 9/12/81 - my #1 regret from all the things that happened from 12/31/80 - 5/29/95.
